AA.MEDIA

Architectural Association
Media Studies


AA MEDIA is an experimental testing ground for exploring and interrogating the tools of the discipline – tools with which we speculate, manipulate and play; compute, control and test; communicate, seduce, and provoke.

Acting as both training camp and laboratory, it is a diverse, multidisciplinary program where unexpected collisions and obsessive attention to detail expose a rich seam of creative potential. Media Studies presents an opportunity to develop individual practice, where students hone their dexterity with established and progressive media, actively testing modes of production through focused acts of doing and making.

THE ART OF PANNING

Antonie Vaxelarie
Weds, 10-1pm, Rear Second Presentation

Every century has created its paradigmatic individual. From the 19th century Flaneur to the 20th century Voyeur, we have always embodied urban and technological revolutions into key human figures. The Art of Panning will give you the tools to become the paradigmatic individual of the 21st century before the 21st century actually happens. This course will dive deep down into the century ahead of us in order for you to embrace its core (yet unknown) ideas and absurdities.
We will unleash the Panneur inside you!
